Sunday Stampers - Week 121 - More Like The Movies

Morning Stampers! Many thanks for all your entries last week... it was grand to see so many new peeps joining in with the challenge. This week the theme is... MOVIES... so you can include a movie theme, your fave film, a soundtrack to a movie, tickets... the list is endless! To join in all you need to do is make a piece of art... include some stamping and the theme... then leave a comment here for me with a linky to the place you are showing your entry... then I can hop on over to see you. So, this week... Movies... I mean, come on, why haven't I thought of this theme before??? And... there are loads of songs with movies in the title but I chose this one cos it reminds me of when I was a nipper, nowt but a gal, listening to Saville's Travels on the radio on a Sunday... ah, happy days!




I have altered a 9" square wooden shadow box... erm, I forgot to take a pic of it before... but it had an acrylic "glass" across the front, so I bashed that with my new hammer that Grim got for me... it is a girly sized one and is pink... and it works! I managed to bash the acrylic out without breaking the frame or bopping myself on the head. I covered the frame with Tissue Tape - this is fab cos it is all movie and ticket themed... then I whacked a bit of Latte Alcohol Ink over it to blend it in.




The back of the shadow box has a piece of paper cut from the Lost & Found stack which I then added some tickets that had been cut with the Ticket Alterations Die... and stamped with two different Ticket stamps from the Duke of Distress. I added the Film Strip which had the film stamp image stuck to it... and then altered some bottlecaps... which I popped a few bottle cap images onto (also from the Lost & Found stack). So... what do I HAVE to have at the movies??? POPCORN! And... Tim has this popcorn stamp... which got me thinking, popcorn comes in little boxy packets... and I remember seeing Lori made a popcorn box a while ago... so I thought I would have a little go... this is the most involved bit of stamping I have done for yonks...*I am awarding myself double points for this.. and it makes up for last weeks lack of stamping LOL*



I fashioned a little packet from white cardstock and stamped the image in the middle of the front. I masked this off and coloured the piece with Old Paper DI. I then cut some strips of paper and used these as masks... and then inked over them with Barn Door DI - when I lifted them off I got the stripey look. I used a waterbrush to add some colour to the popcorn and fill in the gaps of red.



Of course the box now needed popcorn... have we any in the house??? NOPE! I did have some that my Lush stuff had been packed in but I couldn't find it... so I improvised with polystyrene packing stuff... you know, the S shaped stuff that gets everywhere??? Well... this is where I nearly poisoned myself... because... the "popcorn" was falling out of the box... and I wanted it to stay put, so I tried Sticky Dots, nope, wouldn't stick... so, I tried Glossy Accents... nope, wouldn't stick... so I thought.. .aha! I will use Superglue... erm... I had glued a few... and all of a sudden I noticed this smoke wafting from the box of "popcorn"... and then a weird smell... I had set off a chemical reaction and the glue was melting the "popcorn"... oooops ROFL ... needless to say, I stopped that straight away and just stuffed the all into the box so hopefully they won't fall out now LOL Don't worry though... the noxious fumes haven't affected me... I am still as insane as ever! Anyways... enough of my wafflings... thanks for looking... have a goodly day and... TTFN

Polystyrene is nasty stuff and can set on fire so glad you stopped when you did. I can just imagine you sitting there with flames all around you wondering which bit of craft stash to save first!!LOL Having a sweet tooth doesn't always work. Love the finished frame for all that.
